tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC February 29, 2012 12:00am-1:05am EST
this thursday on nat-geo wild. good night, america. up next on an all-new "jimmy kimmel live" -- >> kid rock gave mitt romney's endorsement. he also endorsed porn, jack daniels and hepatitis c. >> joan rivers. >> i wish i had a partner. >> from "dancing with the stars," maria menounos. >> you're my parents. this is so weird.
>> jimmy: hi. i'm jimmy kimmel with cottonelle clean care toilet paper. make sure to respect the roll that respects you, with one of cottonelle's new jonathan adler-designed roll covers. looks very nice to me. but i really should ask our resident art expert what he thinks. guillermo, have you seen the new jonathan adler roll covers? >> first, let me say bonjour, jimmy. >> jimmy: bonjour, guillermo. he turns french when he paints. >> i do not paint, jimmy. i bring life to the canvas. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: the canvas. talk about the toilet paper, will you? yes.
>> oui, jimmy, i respect the roll that respects me. and i respect the work of mr. jonathan adler. but i am working on a masterpiece of my own. >> jimmy: oh, you're working on a piece right now? >> oui. >> jimmy: may i have a look? >> oui. you may see my painting. >> jimmy: you've done it again, guillermo. >> merci. >> jimmy: merci. >> dicky: buy specially marked packages of cottonelle clean care and get free jonathan adler-designed roll cover at respecttheroll.com. also available at select retailers. >> jimmy: "jimmy kimmel live" is back in two minutes with maria menounos, music from mat kearney and joan rivers. sergio! christina! question for you.
what factors led you to buy your explorer. definitely the ecoboost option. what's pretty amazing is that you can get the fuel economy of a car in an suv. that basically did it for us. and the technology... oh, my goodness, the technology is amazing. everything is touch. you can actually talk to the car and it talks back to you. what have your friends said about your explorer? can we drive it? can we borrow it? what's your answer? no. no way. uh uh. (laugh) when i'm on the night shift. when they have more energy than i do. when i don't feel like working out. when there isn't enough of me to go around. ♪ when i have school. and work. every morning. it's faster and easier than coffee. every afternoon when that 2:30 feeling hits. -every day. -every day. every day is a 5-hour energy day. [ male announcer ] 5-hour energy. every day.
and now, sit up. here's jimmy kimmel. [ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: well done. hi, everyone. thank you, cleto. i'm jimmy. i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. let me just say this. you picked a historic night to be here. you are here on the night america found out that urkle will be doing the rumba. they announced the cost of season 14 of "dancing with the stars" this morning on "gma." finally, we got a star who is big enough to be known by one name. and that star is urkle. [ laughter ] some of the dancers this year are well-known. some are not. so, as they were introduced this
morning, they put facts up about each dancer. presumably so we could get to know them better. first of all, the guy i mentioned, his name is jaleel white. he has been acting since age 3. and plays the banjo. we have roshon fegan. a rapper. melissa gilbert. emmy-nomineed actress from "little house on the prairie." has two arms. and gavin degraw, sits when he pees. [ laughter ] there are your dancers for season 14. [ cheers and applause ] this actually surprised me. there are no reality stars on
the show this season, which, if you ask me, seems like a shameful underuse of our nation's strategic kardashian reserve. no kardashians on the show? how can you even do a show without them? on "the bachelor," he threw them off the show. this is some show. he narrowed his harem down to two. at this point, we've seen ben eliminate 23 women. that's a lot of breakups. ben's pretty good at it. he knows what to say to let them down gently. now, he's using his powers of separation to help others ease out of their relationships more gracefully. >> every week, ben sends someone home. >> i cannot give you this rose. >> and now, you can learn how to sever ties, too, with bachelor ben's breakup lines. it tells you how to tell your girlfriend things aren't working out. with lines like, it has nothing
to do with you. >> it has nothing to do with you. i want you to know that. >> we are worlds apart. >> i felt like we are worlds apart. >> i cried a bit today. >> i cried a bit today. i'm not going to lie. >> and make bachelor ben your go away guru. >> it had nothing to do with you. i want you to know that. i feel like we're worlds apart. >> what are you reading? >> you're breaking my heart. >> what breaks your heart? >> bye, jamie. >> who is jamie? >> get bachelor ben's breakup lines on vhs and blu-ray, and dvd. buy now and get a bachelor ben hairpiece today. >> available at walgreens. >> jimmy: a woman in the audience screamed. and it turned out, she was in that. you were one of the girls.
[ cheers and applause ] i'm sorry. what is your name? denise? >> elise. >> jimmy: okay, elise. i'm sorry to bring up your heartbreak. we didn't know you were here. do you think you'll be the bachelorette next year? >> i don't know about that. >> jimmy: i see that you're here with a lot of women. have you turned exclusively to girls? >> we were all dumped by ben. >> jimmy: you were all on the show, dumped by ben? oh, my gosh. when did this become a dumping ground? [ laughter and applause ] well, i'm sorry. how do i not know this? i think there's been too many seasons. that's what i think. either that or -- who knows? guillermo, how are you? >> doing great, jimmy. >> jimmy: great. great to hear it. the republican primaries were held in michigan and arizona today, where mitt romney found
himself neck and neck with rick santorum in his own home state of michigan. santorum has been surging in the polls lately. apparently voters are responding to his message of no birth control and public schools. romney told a story about how much his pants cost. and it was the first place he tied a puppy to the big-wheel. you don't know the story? romney got an unexpected boost from kid rock last night. kid rock showed up at a romney rally and did an impromptu concert. he also endorsed porn, jack daniels and hepatitis c while he was at it. so -- [ cheers and applause ] hey, this is something i hadn't seen before. it's a short film from 1896 called "the kiss." it's believed to be the first kiss ever captured on film.
it was shot and distributed by thomas edison's film company. it's kind of cool to see. take a look. you see here, the guy with the mustache, is nibbling on the face of another guy in a dress. [ laughter ] or maybe he's whispering into her cheek. i don't know what's going on. but then, he twirls his mustache up and plants a kiss right on her. i wanted to show this because i wanted to illustrate how we've gone from that to kim kardashian and ray. thanks, edison. there was a new episode of "american idol" on fox. tonight, it was men's night. all 13 male semifinalists took the stage tonight. and needless to say, this was steven tyler's least favorite evening of the year. ♪ [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: you're never too old to bedazzle. even though there were no female performers, his libido doesn't turn itself off. and so, it's time for the all-dude edition of steven tyler's creepy leer of the night. ♪ [ laughter ] >> jimmy: not so much a leer as more of a -- bemused acknowledgment. that kid, by the way, his name is ebben frankowits. things did not go well at the daytona 500 over the weekend. for the first time ever, the race was postponed on sunday, because of rain. last night, when the race resumed, there was a huge explosion when juan pablo
montoya crashed into a truck filled with fuel. that's the safety truck? how safe could something filled with jet fuel be? and after the crash, the race had to be delayed for another two hours while montoya and the driver of the safety truck exchanged insurance information. it was a little cold here in l.a. last night. another got down to a bone-chilling 46 degrees. we've been getting snow in our mountains, which are good for skiers. but bad for people that don't have chains on their tires. >> this family stopped to put their chains on. did you have chains before? >> no. we had to buy them on the mountain. luckily, he grew up in alaska. so, he knows how to put them on. >> jimmy: well, he's only lived in alaska during the summer. why do i get the feeling he's going to be hearing about that for a long time. dad can do it. he grew up in alaska. there's an event being held in new york over the weekend called
the national yoga-asana championship. it's by a group that's working to get yoga as an olympic sport. nbc is pulling out all the stops to get us to not watch the olympics, aren't they? if football wasn't an olympic sport, why would they include the thing my mom does on tuesday morning, yoga. i hope they don't include yoga. but if they do, i hope they combine it with another olympic sport, like this. >> and he's starting with the arms up position. moving into a forward fold. here he is, transitioning into a handstand. and opening into a split pose. >> and he has definitely taking the goal for that one. >> jimmy: it's yoga-judo.
this is funny our local nbc 5:00 news last night, when the anchor had the chickens on the mind. >> as we continue here at five-a-cluck. >> jimmy: as most of you probably saw the academy awards were held on sunday night. the academy had a new category. have you seen the videos online when people try to eat cinnamon? they're finally being recognized by the academy. >> first, here's the nominees for achievement in cinnamontagraphy. crazy lady with big earrings. >> here's the cinnamon. all right? here goes. [ laughter ] >> too drunk screaming blondes.
>> jimmy: finally, they give an award to a movie we've seen. one more thing, very big news out of nepal, where they crowned the new shortest man in the history of the world. his name is something i can't pronounce. he's 72. he's 21 1/2 inches tall. i don't know how they just found him at 72. [ laughter ] maybe they're waiting for the growth spurt to finish or something. but the plan right now is, if he can do it, is to breed him with snooki to bring the oompa loompa population back. the "today" show ran a story on him. >> the search for the shortest man is over. he stands at just 21 1/2 inches tall. an inch shorter than the reigning champ. at age 72, he is also the oldest man at -- >> jimmy: oh, my. well, he will be missed.
we have a good show for you tonight. our newest dancing star, from maria menounos. we have music tonight from mat kearney. and we'll be right back with joan rivers. so, stick around. [ cheers and applause ] my name is aurora guerrero and i make films about real people and real places. my feature film is a story about two 15 year old chicanas who are growing up in southeast la. it's a story about first love. i got a call from sundance. they told me they wanted to screen mosquita y mari. i was just like, this is it, this is the heavens saying aurora, you're up!
the game's on behind me, right? yup. [ male announcer ] come on in to applebee's for new 2 for $20 meals like zesty bourbon street chicken & shrimp. or our new blackened chicken penne. 20 bucks. only at applebee's. now serving half-price appetizers late night. only at applebee's. this one's for all us lawnsmiths. grass gurus. doers. here's to more saturdays in the sun. and budgets better spent. here's to turning rookies - into experts, and shoppers into savers. here's to picking up. trading up. mixing it up. to well-earned muddy boots. and a lot more - spring per dollar. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. show the yard who's boss, with this cordless black and decker trimmer, just $84.97.

[ cheers and applause ] and then, with music from his latest album called "young love," mat kearney from the bud light stage. you can see mat live at the house of blues in anaheim on april 3rd. tomorrow night, we'll be joined

[ cheers and applause ] [ cheers and applause ]
it's very good to see you. i like that coat. what is this? >> i almost didn't come because there was a tragedy. at the last minute, my dog died. these are my dog's ashes. >> jimmy: for real? i'm sorry to hear that. >> i think she committed suicide. we have filipino neighbors. and she put an apple in her mouth and scratched on their door. >> jimmy: oh, no. >> so, i have her ashes here. >> jimmy: that's nice. it's nice of you to bring them. yeah. i got you. >> there they are. >> jimmy: they look delicious. >> are you a little worried? >> jimmy: a little worried, yeah. >> you think i'm going to thousand them at you. >> jimmy: i would rather you didn't. but -- oh. now, joan, you're not going to win best dressed. the dog -- the dog smells like coffee. [ laughter ] you really committed to that. i have to hand it to you.
>> well -- >> jimmy: now, you have to wear that for the rest of the segment. >> where am i going? all my friends die anyhow. >> jimmy: that's terrible. seriously, that's got to be a terrible thing about getting older. >> and you have to tell the people that are living, you know. and you should never say -- i know we had it with the oscars. just so you know, you should never say somebody passed. the whole point is they're dead. they can't pass. they're there. i had a friend and her husband died. i said to her. he died. and another friend was in the room. i said your husband, he passed. i said gas. it's all right. >> jimmy: not great. but it's better than the alternative. yeah. >> the oscars is going to be some thing for you, huh? >> jimmy: we did it already. but maybe next year we'll do it again. you have ash on your lip and
stuff. >> delicious. i'm really with the dog now. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you're together again. >> together again. >> jimmy: did your dog really die? >> yeah. and my neighbor called me. and what a bitch. and says to me -- would you like a dogsickle because it was hot. a dog to lick. >> jimmy: you have to move. >> and they say, we don't eat dog. there's a leash hanging out of her mouth. they eat dogs. >> jimmy: it's just a small percentage of them, of course. what would you have done to sasha barren cohen if he threw ashes at you on the red carpet? >> i would have been out of my mind. would you be? >> jimmy: if i had known about it, i might be okay. but i don't know if ryan seacrest knew about it. >> no. i would not be happy. when people surprise you with things. don't surprise me. unless it's a mink coat.
don't surprise me. >> jimmy: do you like surprise parties? >> are you out of your mind? you have no [ bleep ] makeup on. [ cheers and applause ] surprise. die, die, die, die. i do not like surprise parties. i have no parties. i don't date. i don't do anything. >> jimmy: nothing? no dating? >> at this age, please. >> jimmy: why? you're very lively. you work all the time. >> i have a great sex life. >> jimmy: you do? >> yeah. i have a great sex life. i wish i had a partner. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] at this age, i'll sit at a dinner party. i'll go to a man like this because i'm flirting. he thinks i'm having a stroke. [ laughter ] they walk away. >> jimmy: oh, is that true? there's got to be somebody for
you? >> there's nobody. >> jimmy: you don't want anybody. >> i like to be alone. >> jimmy: i like you like your life as it is. >> you're out of your mind. >> jimmy: really? you don't. >> i miss somebody so much. >> jimmy: let's get you on "the bachelor" or something. >> i filled out some of the e-things. >> jimmy: match.com. >> match.com. but you have to be careful. >> jimmy: why? >> they say likes long walks. means son of a bitch doesn't have a car. >> jimmy: you're probably right. [ applause ] >> at this age. >> jimmy: a man would have to have a car for you for sure. i think a car is probably important. >> is that too pushy? >> jimmy: that's not too much to ask for. >> at this age, neither one of us -- and i try to dress sexy. but it's hard. >> jimmy: is it? >> come on. it's like, angelina jolie at the oscars. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: you know about this stuff. why do you think she was doing that? >> did she think there was a prize up there? all of hollywood has seen that. [ laughter ] this is a theme park. [ laughter and applause ] the six flags over vulva. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you -- >> don't you think it's hilarious? >> jimmy: you evaluate these people on the red carpet. >> yes, i do. >> jimmy: you're a very good dresser. do you dress yourself? >> i dress myself. >> jimmy: do you have somebody pick out your clothes for you. >> no. you dress yourself, yes or no? i pin on my own diaper. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: not what i was getting at.
>> but they're crotchless. >> jimmy: nice. so, when you go out, you have to look good because you make fun of what everyone's wearing all the time. >> we don't make fun. that is so cruel. what we do on "fashion police," we are critics. i tell the truth. and so, melissa thinks i should look younger. she said to me, get piercings. but i don't need another hole that gas can come out of. [ laughter ] you don't know yet. at 40, you lose your eyesight. at 50, you start to forget. at 60, you start to fart and you don't lose your sense of smell until you're 70. those ten years are so lonely.
